Todd Berger was born on June 13, 1975, in Chicago, Illinois. Lucian Föhr was born on April 9, 1988, in Boulder, Colorado. Together, Berger & Föhr initiated their hybrid art and design practice in 2002 after a random, fortuitous meeting in a downtown Boulder street. They have worked as one entity, sharing authorship ever since.
Their work is a critical exploration of identity at the intersection of conceptual and commercial art. Principally informed by their backgrounds in Swiss, modernist graphic design theory, they employ a research-driven methodology steeped in meaning-making, and materiality yielding what they often consider meta-recursive minimalist works. Their practice aims to critique, recontextualize, and subvert the familiar to question its very nature while presenting new, varying perspectives. Their work includes paintings, prints, sculptures, brands, visual identity systems, zines, books, environmental graphics, murals, internet experiences, and digital and physical products.
Berger & Föhr currently live and work in Boulder, Colorado.
